Tornado-related claims already top $250M in Okla.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ State insurance officials say tornado-related insurance claims from the twisters on May 19 and 20 that tore through Moore and several neighboring communities already represent insured losses of nearly $250 million.

Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak said Tuesday there have been more than 32,400 insurance claims filed since May 19, including nearly 14,000 homeowner claims, 17,000 auto claims and 724 commercial property claims.

Insurance officials say the numbers don't reflect damage incurred during a separate series of tornadoes on Friday, including one west of the Oklahoma City that was upgraded this week to an EF5 tornado. The damages from Friday's tornado aren't expected to be as significant, since it tracked mostly through a rural area between El Reno and Union City.
